SC Velo Toy Drive

The Southern California Velo Cycling Club (SC Velo) and Incycle Bicycle Stores are sponsoring a Christmas Toy Collection drive beginning on Friday November 27th and concluding on Saturday December 19th.  A Toy Ride will be held on Sunday, December 20th to take the collected toys to the San Dimas Sheriff’s station so that they can be distributed to needy families.  All interested cyclists are invited to join with SC Velo riders to support this worthy cause by donating toys and/or participating in the ride.

Unwrapped toys can be left in collection bins at  Incycle Bicycle Stores in San Dimas, Chino, Pasadena, and Rancho Cucamonga ( see: ) between November 27th  and December 19th. 

The SC Velo Toy Ride will depart from the San Dimas Incycle store on Sunday, December 20th at about 9:00 AM for an easy, no-drop, 1 hour+ ride with SAG support to the San Dimas Sheriff’s Station to turn the collected toys over to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department representatives.

All toys collected as part of this drive will be delivered to kids of needy families by deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s San Dimas station.  Last year, the San Dimas station was able to help a large number of families during the Christmas holiday because of our Toy Ride.

This is Tim and his son on the S bends of GMR. Tim's role is to pedal while his son coaches him on his performance. Faster. Faster. That's 50 extra pounds Tim is pulling up to Mt Baldy. Tim passed me by near windy tunnel. I thought wow what a great sag wagon when I noticed his son in the back. I pushed a bit harder or perhaps Tim was ready for a kinder pace. We rode to the shed and had a blast. His son really liked the long boarders walking up the road with their gear.

Another ride. Back to back and half an hour earlier. What luxury to have the autumn opportunity for midweek rides. Mostly quiet. No skateboarders to keep me alert. What a struggle to get the body going. It could have been that bacon and eggs for lunch. Another rarity.

It's been too long. So this ride felt really good. This is just what the doc didn't order. The ride helped clear the sinuses. And the hearing was sharp. A hiker on the way up had a unique sound to her stride. I asked if she had stones in her sneaker treads. She said wow you heard that. Indeed I did.
